Morningstar Sustainability Ratings Now Available
Earlier this year Morningstar Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research, made the new Morningstar Sustainability Ratings for funds available across all of its investor research platforms. First released via Morningstar’s asset manager and investment advisor platforms in March, the ratings were later rolled out to individual investors via the Morningstar.com websites. Based on the underlying fund holdings and company-level ESG research and ratings from Sustainalytics, the Morningstar Sustainability Ratings help investors evaluate funds based on environmental, social and governance factors. Morningstar now provides Sustainability Ratings for approximately 21,000 mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, encompassing $13 trillion in assets under management, or more than half of fund assets globally.
In future issues of Sustainalytics Reporter this section will feature various funds and highlight their respective Morningstar Sustainability Ratings.
